Kelissa McDonald who lived and studied in Ethiopia and Ghana was the inspired by the the continent’s beauty and diversity. McDonald told the Jamaica Observer that her African experience broadened her outlook on life.
“It has really moulded the way I treat people and helped me understand the African roots of Jamaica,” she said.
Kelissa went more in depth to share how her experiences in the Motherland helped create her first project:
“Rebel In Disguise has been a rising for me. I went for a live, very African-inspired sound,” she explained. “Coming back to Jamaica after five years has been about re-connecting with my roots. Being away, I have a greater appreciation for the music here.”
Wearing bold and beautiful locks down her back, McDonald still shows appreciation for the roots her parents helped establish in Jamaican music and the arts. She is the daughter of Errol and Kerida Scott-McDonald, backbone of the progressive reggae band Chakula, who live in Ethiopia. She is also granddaughter of A D Scott, arguably Jamaica’s greatest architect.
